Format: Audio CD
Jesse Malin hit earth with the force of a very large comet in 2002 with the excellent "The Fine Art Of Self Destruction" packed with goodtime songs like "TKO" and "Wendy". He was in addition during that period "hooked" to the coat tails of the then red hot Ryan Adams who at the time of "Heartbreaker" and "Gold" could do not wrong. As a result he became championed by Uncut magazine and his album appeared on numerous year end lists.

Malin unfortunately has never really surpassed that moment and while making a number of steady albums its difficult to speak of any great advance or huge progression in his music. A sure sign of this is that his reviews on Amazon have been in terminal decline over the recent period suggesting that interest is waning. A shame really because "love it to Life" is by a country mile his best album since the "Fine Art" and while his influence may have waned his ability to attract star names continues with Ryan Adams, Brian Fallon and Mandy Moore (Mrs Adams) all guesting on the album. There is no real point giving intricate descriptions of the songs since they have generally a Springsteen meets Adams feel about them and some echoes of the Gaslight Anthem. The best are "Burning the Bowery" with its addictive chorus and the excellent Tom Pettyish style rocker "Disco Ghetto". That said there are other songs here which suggest that lyrically Malin has run out of steam not least of all "Revelations" with its naff chant of "Everything is gonna be ok/Gonna be alright/Gonna be ok", while "Black Boombox" is overcooked and just tries to hard. Consequently you come away from this album with a sense of enjoyment but not total satisfaction. Malin is clearly a "sticker" but he will need to find a new direction in the future to maintain ongoing interest particularly if he doesn't always want to be in the shadows of his more famous friends.

Format: Audio CD
Confusingly Jesse Malin has 2 CDs called 'Love It To Life'. One is a live album, but the item you really want to head for is the studio album under the moniker of Jesse Malin & the St. Marks Social. If your rock tastes involve Springsteen, Westerberg, Petty or Thunders then you'll love the passion and fire on show in these 10 songs. 'All The Way From Moscow' fizzes with punk energy, while 'The Archer' is one of Malin's most affecting ballads to date. To my mind his best album remains 2007's 'Glitter In The Gutter', but this stuffed full of essential stuff too and runs it a close second in the Malin discography. Buy now to enjoy heart-on-sleeve rock anthems and quality songwriting!

Wonderful collection of true rock'n'roll songs of great quality. Jesse has stories behind each song and the depth resonates in the music.

Not a bad album from Jesse but not quite the standard of earlier ones especially The Heat which I thought was terrific. Some good tracks - Disco Ghetto, Low life in a High Rise being two - but a few unmemorable ones too. If you've enjoyed his other albums then buy this one too - it's more than good enough to warrant a purchase.

Lean and Mean and Caring...Good Rock and Roll 6 Aug 2010
By Timothy P. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album fits in with a heretofore unidentified niche on the American music scene: lean, driving music that is played and sung with passion, is well-produced, and wears its heart on its sleeve. Think Paul Westerberg or Ryan Adams with a few musical flourishes all its own.

The songs are all good here--"Burning the Bowery" kicks things up with a muscular charm, and the rest of the tracks keep that guitar/bass/drums/rough-hewn vocals thing going. The desperation evident on track two when he shouts "you don't get your money back here!" lets the listener know that this is personal, as indeed it is.

My personal favorites on the album right now are "Disco Ghetto" and "Lonely at Heart," a ballad-riffic album closer which reminds me of Westerberg or Adams while briefly lifting from Elvis Costello ("you drink in self-defence"). While he does lift a little bit of attitude and structure from the artists listed above (Westerberg in particular), Malin's still got a distinct personality and distinction of his own. From name-checking Ken Kesey novels to his rocking explorations of the night life of people who simply don't know any other way to live, this album really does a lot of things well. It rocks, it rolls, and it's both intelligent and passionate at the same time.

A very good record.

Burn the Bowery 21 May 2010
By Frank G. Wetteroth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I heard the tune "Burning the Bowery" and had to buy the CD. All I can say is this is a tight Cd with great tunes. Not one dog in the bunch, but it's "Burning the Bowery" that really knocks me out.
Give it chance. Buy Jesse Malin and the St. Marks Social CD "Love it to LIfe", pretty cool, unique stuff.
Keeps topping himself 25 Oct 2010
By Hey Reg! - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Just when I thought Glitter was his Abbey Road; he comes out with "Love it to Life" This is a double surprise when you consider the cover "Sleeve" album (waste of time) followed Glitter. I really thought he was done. Although I'm ready to move this to #1; I still can't get Broken Radio out of my head - Best Song in his catalog. My least favorite is probably In Heat; while I must admit it was going to be tough to follow that outstanding debut "FAOD" which just gave me chills I hadn't had since my first intro to Bruce. Ironic that these guys get along. Also as a Westerbeg junkie; I get and agree with some of the comparisons. Let me give you one more excellent songwriter under the radar, who you might like along with Bruce, Jesse & PW - Michael McDermott (check him out!)

This is a fantastic CD. It rocks from start to finish. As usual with Jesse the song writing is top notch. This CD should be playing on everyone's boombox!

Again Jesse Malin delivers yet another brilliant record. The Archer is my favourite song. A great songwriter, great voice & a talented musician. I Love It To Life & yes I went there.
